The Myth of California in American History

Very early on, California was coveted by the United States which was
driven toward the West by its economic and demographic dynamism.
Conquered from Mexico in 1848, California offered natural resources
which made it a durable magnet : from the gold rush to Hollywood
fame to the Silicon Valley, it stands for prosperity and it is a place
where fortunes are made and lost. Its power of attraction is also due to
its natural landscape, its sun and palm trees and a climate of tolerance
that has endured despite some very violent racial conflicts.
